Default Where do you fall on the political compass?

https://www.politicalcompass.org/test


Fun test. Not that accurate, and some weird questions but it's fun to see where you fall. My computer did just say "Safari couldn't identify the server" of the website or some shit but I went anyways. Just a heads up for anyone who might be nervous about that kind of message for their computer's safety.


Here's mine from a few weeks ago

Not sure how accurate this is but it at least maybe gives people a better understanding

there's some nice hot takes among those statements

Good parents sometimes have to spank their children.
What’s good for the most successful corporations is always, ultimately, good for all of us.
In a civilised society, one must always have people above to be obeyed and people below to be commanded.
Abstract art that doesn’t represent anything shouldn’t be considered art at all.

The only social responsibility of a company should be to deliver a profit to its shareholders.

Your children proceed grow up to become Jeff Bezos 2.0 and stick you in a nursing home for listening to that "weird bald guy from the 1990's".

Most will be in the green at the least I imagine. Billy will be in the purple if he posts here.

The test was written by a libertarian so it really only tells you what a libertarian sees you as

although since it's so popular and is the go-to litmus test for political views, most other people will assume it's accurate and so that's how they'll see you too

Libertarian in what sense?

It's not nuanced enough to test for views on lesser-evilism, which is an issue that rbg and Squish Squash intensely disagree on, so their results are the same

I respect them more than I do traditional conservatives, because at least when they say they want the government out of their lives, they actually mean it, and don't make exceptions for "but I still want the government to tell me who I can marry and to throw me in jail for putting the big no-no substances into my body and to have an interest in promoting one religion over others."

The other camp of libertarians are the ones who aren't under the illusion that capitalism is in the best interest of everybody, but don't care, because "fuck the poor, fuck minorities, fuck women; I've got mine, Jack." A lot of them are closet fascists who, despite thinking that the government should be kept out of markets, still want the government to strictly regulate immigration as a form of trade barrier on cheap labour, because if brown people are willing to work harder for less money, then the government should step in to protect less competitive whites. They tend to embrace shades of cultural- and ethno-nationalism that pretty smoothly greases their slide through the libertarianism-to-fascism-pipeline. And the next thing you know, they have gone from regurgitating Ayn Rand to Tweeting about how female popstars need to stop wasting their eggs and instead stay at home and start making babies before the browns and blacks start outbreeding the whites.

A lot of the questions on this test are similar to questions found on the F scale test (to identify fascistic views and sympathies).

Definitely not in the sense that this compass implies, i.e. in opposition to authoritarianism

I feel like the libertarian label on this test could just be replaced with "liberal," since liberalism is about personal freedom and rights but is compatible with both economic leftism, and economic conservatism.

So in the sense we think of libertarianism in America. My main problem with libertarianism is that I don't think you can truly be for freedom if you are giving massive corporations such freedom as if they are people. I've tried to explain this to one of my best friends, who is a libertarian himself. I at least know he legitimately believes this, rather than it being a mask for more authoritarian right tendencies, as he did vote for Bernie like me.

Well, then there's classical liberalism, which is similar to American libertarianism as far as I know. I'm also a complete moron, so I might be wrong here.
